The Russian goalkeeper saves a penalty in the 98th minute and saves first place, to the detriment of Spalletti’s team. Sparta Prague avoids elimination against Brondby and relegates to the Conference
On the night of the verdicts Frankfurt and Spartak Moscow join Lyon and Monaco in the list of teams qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League. Incredible in Warsaw, where Selikhov saves a penalty at the Legia in the 98th minute and allows the Russians to win and overtake Napoli (second) in the lead of group C. In San Sebastián a brace from captain Oyarzabal brings Real Sociedad in triumph, second in the group B in front of the third PSV, beaten in the decisive match. Olympiacos and Rangers the other runners; Sparta Prague (2-0 over Brondby), Leicester and Fenerbahce also relegated to the Conference.
An irrelevant draw, 1-1, between Lyon and Rangers, already certain to close respectively in first and second place in the group. Initial pole of the Scots, who then carry on with Wright anyway before the break. Impact Lyon using an own goal from Bassey without ever finding a success that would have been important only for history, to become the first French team to win all the matches of the group stage of the Europa League. Sparta Prague wins 2-0 against Brondby and confirms third place, the one that is worth the sixteenth-playoffs of the Conference League. The less important cup, of course, but at least the European path continues. Goals from Hancko and Hlozek in the six minutes between the break, then both remain in ten.
Final standings: Lyon 16, Rangers 8, Sparta Prague 7, Brondby 2.
Monaco had gained access to the second round with one round to spare and in the last match impacted 1-1 against Sturm Graz, last of the group without success. Goals from Jantscher in the 6 ‘, with a penalty kicked hard after Pavlovic’s arm touch, and from Volland in the half hour for Monaco’s equal. The emotions are all in the other challenge, the big match between Real Sociedad and PSV which is worth the second place. The hero is the captain of the Basques, the 24-year-old Oyarzabal, who exults on a penalty in the 43 ‘(in the area the defender Mwene saves with his hand) and in the 62’ doubles. Sangaré sent off in the 74th minute, while Sørloth signed the final 3-0 in the 93rd minute. Overtaken Dutch and third parties.
Final standings: Monaco 11, Real Sociedad 9, Psv 8, Sturm Graz 2.
Spartak Moscow won by measure (1-0) against Legia (last) and overtook Napoli in the lead of the group thanks to the direct match won last day. The Russians surprised their opponents on 17 ‘with a goal from Bakaev and then protected themselves until the 98’ when Pekhart got the chance to equalize from the spot (after checking the Var). A penalty kicked badly at half-height that would have been worth the passage to the second round of Napoli, for a few hopeful seconds in a miracle. Leicester finished third beaten by Spalletti’s band.
Final standings: Spartak Moscow and Naples 10, Leicester 8, Legia 6.
Olympiacos does everything, they have to try to win to believe in first place and instead immediately go down against the already eliminated Antwerp and settle for second. Balikwisha unlocks the result with a great goal, applauded by the former Inter Nainggolan on the bench, even if the opposing defense is not in great shape. Eintracht Frankfurt, reassured by the result of the other field, does not go beyond the 1-1 against Fenerbahce (third even before playing) and confirms the record. The Germans took the lead with Sow’s first goal in the cup (29 ‘) on an assist from Kostic; equalized Berisha who had a goal canceled in the first half.
Final standings: Frankfurt 12, Olympicos 9, Fenerbahce 6, Antwerp 5.
